poster4croppedResearch shows clearly that displaying positive images of fathers in childcare, health and education settings, and training ALL staff in how and why to engage with them, are key steps in successfully drawing fathers in.

That’s why we have produced two fantastic new resources (available now through via the weblinks below, by email on and by telephone order on 0845 634 1328) to assist you in reaching out to dads – and meeting the growing raft of policy directives that require you to do so.

The Fatherhood Institute Poster Pack

The posters are available in sets of 4 (one each of four designs) and cost just £12 plus VAT. Discounts apply for bulk orders. For more details click here.

The Fatherhood Institute Photo Pack

photopack folderThis set of 10 A5 photo-cards is designed to stimulate thinking and discussion about fathers and fatherhood. Each card features an attractive image or set of images and, on the reverse, key research findings, facts and simple exercises.

The cards, which provide the ideal ‘way in’ to talking with and about dads, can be used in group work or one-to-one, on parenting courses and in individual discussion, in meetings, supervisions and workshops, to train staff to think differently and distinctively about dads, to help mums and dads talk about their roles, and to allow teenagers or quite young children to speak about the people who ‘father’ them, in age-appropriate ways. Suitable for use in schools and nurseries, further education and training, Children’s Centres and social care settings, youth work, maternity and primary care services…

Subjects covered on the cards include: the ‘mother and baby’ culture; dads and childcare; dads and the workplace; dads and mums; dads and child development; dads’ capabilities; diverse dads; dads and child health; inviting dads in.

The Fatherhood Photo-Pack costs £12.50 plus VAT, with a 25% reduction for 10 copies or more. For more details click here.
